I have Excel installed on a Windows 2012 RDS server.  The server also contains a share drive which contains the user data in a centralized location.  

I go to Excel trusted location - file>option>trust center>trust center setting>trusted location, and enter the UNC path of the share drive (which is locally on the server - \\myserver\userdata).  I drop a protected worksheet in the share and open it from there.  I still see the worksheet is opened in protected view.  

I then go back to update the trusted location with drive letter path - c:\userdata, the document is opened normally.  

Anyone knows if UNC path be used when adding a trusted location?

Thanks,

I am running Excel 2013 on Windows 10.  I had no trouble adding a Trusted Location by UNC as long as I have the "Allow Trusted Locations on my network" box checked.
